francisco, you cannot take advantage of the city contracting you for your active duty military years. well, i served and fought right along with san francisco marines and i would like to see that changed. i'm probably the only veteran in the city to say that, but i'm saying that because it not only serves up the veteran right that served on active duty, but it also helps the city by moving people along. i served active duty for three years. that would move me out of the system. and i'd like to move along and retire so that i can devote more time to helping veterans because i can see where there's a lot of need and a lot of areas where veterans can be helped, particularly in the areas of employment. when i was at the community center, i put a lot of people to work in construction and i privately made veterans a priority when i was putting them in the construction apprenticeship programs because i remembered myself being homeless. so, i said -- when i would look at the he application, i said, okay, this person is a veteran. so, i'm going to just make them a priority for the next

's the view from our city camera view panning back towards the city of washington. just some fair weather clouds out there today. off to the cloud races. these guys are going by quickly thanks to all the wind energy outside. 33, that's our current temperature in washington. a sustained wind now from the northwest averaging 28 miles per hour. again, winds are gusting higher than that at times. so air temperatures, upper 20s and low 30s around most of the metro area right now. but the windchills are still in the teens and low 20s. so heavy winter jackets and scarves and hats and gloves all required for today. your hour by hour temperatures on their way up. slowly but steadily. it's going to stay windy all day long today. high temperature closing in on 40 degrees around 2:00, 3:00, 4:00 this afternoon. trending right back down below the freezing mark by about 8:00 or 9:00 this evening under a clear sky. the winds will be fading back. a little cooler in northern maryland where highs will stay in the mid-30s. nothing to worry about as far as snow is concerned with all the talk of the big blizz
to the west and go to northern new jersey and the new york city area notice the snow is gradually ending from the west to the east. central and eastern connecticut, you still have plenty of snow. it's not the case in eastern connecticut, rhode island, and the boston area and all of coastal maine, they're seeing occasional bouts of heavy snow. some of these bands are still pretty strong and that's going to continue to be the case for much of the morning. in fact, where you see the blue that's an additional 3 to 6 inches of snow could fall before the end of the day and that certainly does seem like that could be reasonable. >> how about the danger of flooding, especially in areas hit hardest by superstorm sandy, david? >> that's a good question. i know as far south as atlantic city during high tide we saw moderate coastal flooding and wash in that area. the winds now not only for the jersey shore and long island connecticut, now have it going offshore. the coastal flood warnings are confined along the massachusetts and maine shoreline. and, again, that should graduall

, the storm center itself is in the vicinity of cape cod and from connecticut to long island. new york city is on the west edge of the most activity as far as snow is concerned and connecticut has the highest measurements right now with two feet of snow and as you can see on the radar, still blustering. >> as john was mentioning, the snow doesn't look like it wants to move out very fast. it has the potential to be a record-breaker. >> this morning 600 businesses and homes without power, the errant is closed. thousands of flights are grounded. james gray has more. >> the amount of snow across the northeast. in some areas including boston, accumulations could reach three feet or more. some of that snow pushed by winds of up to 75 miles an hour. a brutal combination creating dangerous blizzard conditions. the storm has literally stopped most of new england in its tracks. more than 1,800 cancellations at area airports and 4700 flights canceled nationwide. the governor of massachusetts today ordered all cars off the roadaway starting at 4:00 p.m. after this 19-car pileup in maine. scattered cars

of the chief during the return to duty presentation and then sometimes the city attorney will caution us not to ask certain questions. and the reason why, it was explained to me and i got it, is that the powerpoint that is shown to us isn't necessarily what the chief saw and was basing his decision on when he approved or disapproved of the return to duty panel's recommendations. and that's part of why when we ask questions related to the powerpoint and not really to what the chief looked at, we're not doing things the right way. so, a part of this presentation was to figure out what does the panel look at and what is given to the chief versus what we see so that we are asking the right questions and we know the zone of questions to ask when we're given those powerpoint presentations so it's not the confusing thing to us. >> really, the powerpoint forms the basis of documents that are in there. again, the order -- 81 1 says the purpose is to determine whether it is appropriate to return the officer to duty. but it is avenue obviously very early in the investigation. so, the facts that ar
